The Nationals have named Gio Gonzalez as Monday’s starter at the Brewers. Gonzalez comes off of a 2-0 loss at Pittsburgh with both runs given up through six frames.
The Milwaukee Brewers have been n a tailspin that has seen losses in eight of nine following an 11-2 defeat to the visiting Dodgers on Sunday. Milwaukee starter Brent Suter was charged with six runs on eight hits over three frames before Taylor Williams gave up five runs (three earned) in an inning.
The Brewers attack consisted of six hits and four bases on balls with Travis Shaw smacking a two run single that scored Keon Broxton and Christian Yelich in the first inning.
The Brewers send Jhoulys Chacin to the mound to face visiting Washington on Monday. Chacin received a ND in a 7-6 loss at Pittsburgh with two runs scoring over five frames.
Washington are 4-12 in their last 16 road games and under is 49-20-6 in Washington last 75 road games and Washington are 10-21 in their last 31 overall. Milwaukee are 1-7 in their last 8 overall and are 1-7 in their last 8 games on grass and are 7-2 in their last 9 home games.
Milwaukee certainly doesn’t look like an appealing wager but I’d do something small on them if I bet this…
